Arts, sciences and humanities build healthier, more livable, vital communities. They are essential to a strong education system. They contribute enormously to our economy.
Well before there was John James Audubon, there was Thomas Bewick, British artist, engraver and author and illustrator of what might be considered the first field guide to birds in the world. But he was much more than an accomplished bird artist, because Bewick’s miniature and complex engraved scenes of British rural life in the 18th century have defined the way many of us think about England at that time. Join us at 9:30, when Inquiry talks with writer and editor JENNY UGLOW about her wonderful biography of NATURE’S ENGRAVER: A LIFE OF THOMAS BEWICK.
